A Dream

Once I dreamed I awoke on a ship
In my own special room, as she swayed and dipped
I walk down the corridors, just like a queen
Touching and seeing the things in my dream
I stopped at the railing and looked at the sea
And it just as fine and as clear as could be
But storm clouds arose and the ship began to toss
I ran back to my room, completely at loss
How to find a life jacket somewhere on that boat
Something in case, just to keep me afloat
I hunted for hours; it seemed quite a search
But when I woke up, I was wearing a purse.
Patti Masterman



A Galaxy of One

Could be that the true soul
Is stretched tautly thin
Throughout the hidden world-
Thinner than a quark crepe,
Floating atop quark soup
Absorbing and processing
The very things
Which engineer our reveries
What if we could experience
Every possible lifetime
That imagination might fancy
From birth to death; to live, to love,
To fling ourselves into
Every conceivable venue
With only a touch of deja-vu
Now and then, to betray it-
The beady darkness teems
With myriad uncharted voyages
From you, the single port of entrance
For the legion of intrepid children souls:
Wanderers breathed into life
By one travellers existence.
Patti Masterman



A Giraffe Ate Your Tulips

There really is no nice way
To tell you what I saw;
But a giraffe ate your tulips-
He chomped them with his maw.

How he came to be there,
Inside your flower beds,
I really cannot tell you but-
He bit their bulbous heads.

He chewed them up a time or two,
And swallowed each in turn,
Then took a sip of water
At the bird bath, by the urn.

He ate them all quite neatly-
(I think his favorite's red)
And wiped his mouth on branches,
Then scratched his spotted head.

All day I've been debating
Just how to break the news;
But a giraffe ate your tulips,
And then he had a snooze.

He snoozed against the carport,
And he swatted at the flies
With his handy tail-swipe,
When I swear I heard him sigh.

And I'm mostly sure I heard him
Belch a time or two,
Before heading for Mrs. Johnson's-
Where he ate her tulips too.

I know you miss your tulips;
They had the strangest fate,
But a tulip munching giraffe,
You could not anticipate.

You ought to plant more tulips;
I don't think he's coming back-
But maybe choose a different shade-
That giraffes will not snack.
Patti Masterman



A Rhinoceros Is Always Nicer-ous

A rhinoceros is large because
His behind, gargantuan; just coz,
His eyes myopic- I'm just saying;
Not being a racialist, dismayin'.
His bite his bark, wherever he wants
He parks or farts, and hugely haunts
Amongst the crocodiles, with taunts-

A rhinoceros is always nicer-ous
Mostly when far away, from us.
Patti Masterman
